Dream ortho treatment for your significant other
« on: 27. December 2017, 22:36:32 PM »
So this is definitely a fictional question but I am curious...
Lets say your significant other is about to undergo orthodontic work and when that day arrives and your significant others name is called and taken back and placed in the chair which the Dr. then approaches you and says "our ortho methods are completely arbitrary here meaning YOU get to render and choose your significant others treatment/appliances w/o them knowing. What's it gonna be?"

I'd request for the molars and premolars to be banded, definitely a lower expander and Herbst appliance on both sides though I'd find it hard to choose between a metal RPE or a quad helix with a plastic plate (like this girl's http://anonym.to/?https://m.youtube.com/watch?list=PLKOYGpVXKj-_QgASDPyWIhrr-973WTqG3&t=315s&v=Y6BiTpGb4X0 )
I'd ask the orthodontist to fit springs between her premolars and canines, also canines and lateral incisors to give her more overjet. I'd hope this would continue until her front brackets were visible even when she tried to close her mouth.
Later on in the treatment, I'd like the Herbst removed and a strict regimen of elastics - lots of triangles zigzagging from her back teeth and a box elastic on the front.
When she has nice gaps from the springs, I'd keep everything in place with twisted wire ligatures across the top teeth and a powerchain (maybe pink) across the bottom

Honestly, while it'd be great for her to have a variety of unusual and visible appliances, I think I'd really just prefer standard metal braces --- something acceptable, not that weird, and just a simple shiny addition to her smile!

I'd ask for her to start with an activator or twin block for a few months. After that, full braces with a herbst appliance and then combo headgear. The last part of the treatment would involve heavy power chains and elastics. After completing treatment with braces, she would get upper and lower hawley retainers.

I think that many people would have a different opinion of what they would have done if one of the conditions of treatment was that you would be treated with the same devices at the same time.

Since I myself enjoy wearing braces, and have worn fakes in the past, I would go with full bands top and bottom. Elastics for most of the treatment to shift the teeth into place. Powerchains right from the start of the treatment. I would require colored elastics and powerchains the whole time.

I would have Hawley retainers top and bottom for the completion phase of the treatment.

Mine would be both of us wearing full bands.  I would have double expanders and a tongue crib. My wife would have a  forsus springs and both of us headgears 24/7 for 5 years.

I would ask for fully banded molars maybe even up to bicuspids, upper and lower RPEs, and an upper tongue crib. A herbst appliance as well as headgear that she'd be expected to wear 20 hours a week. Within a few months of treatment I'd like to see upper and lower power chains, and some midline and bite plane elastics to complete the look.

I guess i'd say braces with a lip bumper, tongue crib, and headgear, kept in as long as possible. Then retainers of course after all the metal is removed.

Yes. Unhidable headgear and bright lip bumper for all to see and make you feel embarrassed :)

Start with a twin block. After that metal braces combined with an upper expander and herbst. A lot of powerchains and elastics of course. After some time cervical headgear 20 hours a day. And when finished upper an lower hawley.

Full metal braces with the double archwire method top and bottom with fixed RPE top and fixed expander bottom and a fixed Herbst appliance connecting the two expanders. The bottom expander has bitelates on each side covering back 3 molars. Then she will get top and bottom thick rubber lipbumpers in a brownish tan color. To Finnish it off she will obtain an old fashioned leather combination headgear attached to a fixed oversized fixed facebow with a metal bitelate attached to the innerbow.

After wearing the removable expansion retainers she would get fixed expander top and bottom.
Upper RPE would have a very large tongue crib positioned farther back and extra wide extra tall for full effect and high visability
